NIH Biosketch: Present Your Capabilities Effectively 
LIVE Webinar • Wednesday, April 6 • 1:00 P.M. • 60 Minutes

NEW LOCATION: Natural Science Center room 218.  Doors open at 12:40 pm
Your grant application is — in many ways — a story. Each section must grab attention and build your case for funding, within page and character limits. So you must make the most of every word you write — including what you say about yourself in your Biosketch. This section is more than a simple biography of the principal investigator and other team members. You can use this area creatively to increase your chances of obtaining the funding you seek.

This Webinar will reveal tricks of the trade and recommended tactics for effectively presenting your capabilities. For example, how to highlight what is most pertinent, the importance of uniformity across your team members’ biographies, and key words, phrases, publications and topics that will impress reviewers.
